Wichita Free Speech and Civil Discourse Student Symposium

This will be a two-day symposium style program for students, comprised of workshop and dialogue-based sessions. It will rely on student participation, preparation, and involvement. It is best suited for High School Government, Civics, U.S. History, English Language Arts and Social Studies students, and is appropriate for Forensics and Debate clubs.


The goal of the student symposium is to engage, equip, and connect students with the skills and understandings necessary to be the next generation of principled leaders. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with inspiring voices on the subjects, tackle issues important to their communities and Kansas, and discuss how their generation must respond to these pressing issues in their daily lives.  In this two-day symposium, students will explore sides of the Free Speech discussion in 21st Century America, civil discourse, and community impact activities.  They with have rich interactions with fellow students and BRI content, with the intent to develop a better understanding of the ways discourse and freedom can flourish in the United States.
